5 killed by Russian shelling in Ukraine

Emergency officials said that five people, including three children, were killed by Russian shelling on a residential building in the city of Chernihiv in northern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian emergency ministry, in a statement on Telegram, said that its emergency workers had recovered the five bodies from under the rubble of a multi-story apartment building.

Defense officials also posted on Telegram a photo of the building, whose windows were blown out. The photo showed three emergency workers who stood on a heap of rubble, while a third one climbed a ladder to inspect what was inside.

Chernihiv, a city located north of the capital Kyiv and close to the border with Moscow’s ally Belarus, had been heavily shelled by Russian air forces since Russia launched the offensive on February 24.

Earlier Wednesday, Ukrainian prosecutors said 10 people in Chernihiv were killed while queuing to collect bread.

Ukraine’s Defence Minister, Oleksiy Reznikov, said that 103 children had been killed since the start of the conflict and more than a hundred hospitals had been damaged or destroyed.
